The Mammalian Spinal Cord,
Edition 1
By Charles Watson, Gulgun Sengul and George Paxinos

Publication Date: 04 Apr 2022

The Mammalian Spinal Cord provides a comprehensive account of the anatomy and histology of the spinal cord. The text covers the cytoarchitecture, chemoarchitecture, motor neuron distribution, long tracts, autonomic outflow, and gene expression in the spinal cord. A feature of the book is the inclusion of segment-by-segment atlases of the spinal cords of rat, mouse, newborn mouse, marmoset, rhesus monkey, and human. This book is an essential reference for researchers studying the spinal cord.

Key Features

  • Includes full-color photographic images of Nissl-stained sections from every spinal cord segment in each of two rodent and three primate species, over 160 Nissl plates
  • Contains comprehensively labeled diagrams to accompany each Nissl-stained section, over 160 diagrams
  • Provides more than 500 photographic images of sections stained for AChE, ChAT, parvalbumin, NADPH- diaphorase, calretinin, or other markers to supplement the Nissl-stained images
